Hope For Tomorrow

Every now and then you read a story about some great young kid…and you can’t help but find a little encouragement

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Zach Nash was shocked when he discovered he had one too many golf clubs in his bag a couple hours after winning a junior Wisconsin PGA tournament.

But rules are rules, and the 14-year-old from southern Wisconsin made a decision that might surprise some people: He disqualified himself and surrendered his medal.

Good for him. “A decent, honorable young man he is” says my inner Yoda.

  1. What a nice bit of HOPE to read on this Friday!

    For those of us who have been around the game of golf for decades, this story isn’t all that remarkable. Its a game of integrity and honesty and it is why it is a life influencing activity. My two boys started playing when they were very young and I marvel at what the game has taught them.

    Good for young Mr. Nash for upholding the honor of the game.

    Y’all know I love the Lord’s own hockey – but I must admit, if someone on the rink just shut their mouth and went to the box because they know they did it, it would be news. It’s always “But you didn’t call X” or “No way” or “But you didn’t see what HE did.” And two-thirds of that is calculated BS; the guys are trying to “win” the next call by planting doubt.

    Bless your heart, Zach Nash. Thanks.

  4. It is what is expected, but still both nice to hear, and unfortunately rather rare!
